The Angel Investment Manifesto paves the way

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

The new board recently launched and discussed its BAE Manifesto towards the European Commission, as a trailblazer for the next years of angel investment fostering throughout Europe. We are excited to share some highlights from this Angel Investment Manifesto, which outlines our commitment to strengthening the European entrepreneurial ecosystem by enhancing the role of angels as a primary source of investment. The manifesto highlights the vital role of business angels in supporting Europe's entrepreneurial economy and calls for specific policy measures to ensure the continued growth and sustainability of early-stage finance across Europe. Let's dive into the key points of our manifesto:

  • Support tax incentive schemes for angel investment and cross-border investment.

  • Reinforce angel co-investment funds to leverage and catalyse angel investment across Europe.

  • Support capacity building to address imbalances in access to angel investment and diverse business founders' access to investment.

  • Develop a secondary market to enable angel investors to recycle their investment potential into further startups.

  • Develop a dedicated funding and capacity building program for angel investments at the proof-of-concept level into high-risk science, innovation, and technology-based early-stage businesses and spin-outs.
